Since launch­ing their Bird­land model back in 2005, Bopworks has been forging a rep­u­ta­tion with sticks de­signed to recre­ate the weight and feel favoured by top jazzers in the ’50s and ’60s. For 2017 Bopworks has launched three new mod­els: theMem­phisR&B is 16" long with a di­am­e­ter of .570 and a ta­per slightly longer than 5", blend­ing to a melded tip; theRhythm & Groovz stick is Bopworks’ largest at 16½".It fea­tures a 5B-style thick­ness (.590) on the shaft, with a 7" ta­per end­ing in a medium small tip.The third ad­di­tion is the newSpread-lok wire brush, fea­tur­ing .012 wire, the tra­di­tional gauge of most vin­tage brushes, and with the abil­ity to lock the wires at a 2" or 4" spread.
